been doing in the area of what has ex-spended from mobile retail to the end serve use category. >> so what we are trying to do is develop a new city-wide program to permit retail sales and services from and within the motor vehicles on city streets. this stemed from an increasing number of requests asking for permits, people would come into the small business assistance center and i want to open a truck that sells wigets and we will say sorry you can't sell on the street, what do you mean that people are selling food out of trucks and why can't i do that? we have to tell them that they have a specific process in permitting what you can go through for that and no such process exists i can't help you, think of a different business, not exactly. but that is where things stand currently. some people are doing that, without a permit. but these folks are trying to do the right thing and come in and get their business, vetted and regulated so they can get up and running. >> so, as you probably know from your personal experience, the mobile concept is sort of emerging in a lot of different ar
seen first-hand are this creative use here it is a mobile show room and it is adapable to the configurations depending on the needs. this evening, they have configured it to be a mobile art gallery a collection from a local artist and brought it out to the event to try to support that artist getting outside of his traditional area, which i believe was in the richmond? and elsewhere, at that same event, i can see a line up here of a variety of different mobile retailers, most of them are clothing boutiques there is one specialty animal supplies and a mobile, personal stylist and you can go in there and they will help you redo your look or what you have. it runs the whole gamut already with the limited number of businesss that we have identified. so, as we work through this, the office of small business is taking the lead, we tried to jump out front and prevent any particular department from crafting regulations, you know, that did not necessarily take into account interest of small businesses. so we see this, as an exciting concept. something that could be beneficial for
of the taxicabs. they're taking the airport rides. these people aren't insured as ed heely pointed out. these used to be considered gypsy cabs, not because they're using an app. somehow they're innovative entrepreneurs. so, you guys have to do something about this or forget about making any money. you ruined the lives of a lot of drivers already. come on, do something. you know, hire some investigators out there. do your job. >> thank you. anyone else care to address the board under the public comment? okay, seeing none public comment period is closed. director brinkman. >> could we please, director reiskin, get some kind of update on where we stand with not only hiring -- budgeting to hire new inspector to taxi administrative services, but also just where we stand on what we can do about lift inside car and car to go? i did read the new puc rulings. i have to admit i'm a little lost as to where that leaves us and what our options are now. i think it would be really helpful to get an update on that. i know it concerns -- it concerns all of us as city people and taxi riders. >> especially the insur
on this matter of which then they apprise the mayor's office and the mayor's office will keep us apprised and so we will provide you updates when we have them. and, then, the affordable care act, so at our last meeting, i mentioned that i was attending a briefing with tangerine bring am from the department of public health. and so it turns out that there are some funding, there is small pot of funding that is available to do out reach and education. there is a short turn around time to do, or to put together a grant proposal. and so, we are having some discussions about what that looks like in terms of out reach to our small business and exactly what small business populations we will be targeting. because we do have small businesses that are sole proprieter and they fall in that pool to mandate to purchase their own health insurance and we have a small business that has a workforce that may qualify for medicare or medicaid and a partially insurance plan under covered california and covered california is the exchange program, so how do we do out reach education, let businesses know, and individu
. it's going to be an uphill fight, as president obama has reminded us, but we have it keep talking about it. we have to keep it in the forefrupt. we have to keep the pictures of our youth in front of us in everything that we do. this is what i am willing to do and again continue asking everybody for help in the city because the more i do that, the more of the graciousness of our community comes out because this is not something that just law enforcement can do, it's got to be our whole society acting together. thank you. (applause). * * * * * * * * * the regularly scheduled meeting of the entertainment commission for february 5th, 2013. can you call the roll? >> commissioner lee? >> here. >> commissioner tan? >> here. >> commissioner hyde? >> here. >> commissioner perez? >> here. >> commissioner joseph? >> here. >> you have a quorum. commissioner akers and enter newlin are absent. >> thank you. item number 1 on our agenda is public comment. this is the time the public has an opportunity to address the commission on items of interest to the public that are subject to our jurisdict
in writing today. it's been very hectic for us and we do want to get right to the permits because we have a long agendaedthv we just wanted to update you quickly. [speaker not understood] the piece of the legislation. i spoke previously about a piece of legislation introduced last year by supervisor chiu regarding polk street and the creation of the new alcohol use district. and, so, there's been a lot of conversation. there was a meeting at the small business commission and at committee level. i attended a meeting today in supervisor chiu's office to mike changes and amendments to that. so, it continues to morph in different ways and we'll keep the commission updated. i still do have a request in to amy chin from the supervisor's office to address you and i guess they feel it's in a place where it may move ahead. there's just a lot of changes to it so it's still happening. we will have a chance to weigh in on that. i wanted to remind the commission, i'm not sure if i told you this or not before. for sometime in over -- pretty much all through 2010, we were -- the commission was addressin
at the liquor store and so it might be something where someone would come down and give us financial services a couple of days a week until there was an opportunity to put in the full service and these are form law retailers in many cases, but, even they are not ready to put down roots yet in certain neighborhood. and so i can see where this will be important for a whole bunch of different sort of classes and things and not just opportunistic cools tips through retail which i think is interesting to me but also the vital services for community that are under served or emerging. >> that sort of ties in from what we are seeing, the program focus to balance the needs of neighborhoods that are not being met. >> it is exciting and a lot to it and it is very interesting and a nuance area. so we have a lot to get your arms around >> great. >> commissioner o'brien? >> very quickly, you made me have a thought there that you may know about the soft story initiative where they are trying to go into these soft story building and one of the big logical challenges that we have been contending with is how d
